Success takes time.
It took years to construct. The structure was made of only the finest gold, silver, and cedar. The construction had to be solid, and the furnishings had to be beautiful and perfect. Solomon used only the most skilled craftsmen to perform the work. The temple Solomon built for the Lord was a masterpiece. He commented in 2 Chronicles 2:5, “This must be a magnificent temple because our God is greater than all other gods….”
We are God’s temple.
The Bible teaches in 1 Corinthians 6 that we are the Lord’s temple. In the same way it took time to build the temple Solomon constructed, it may take time to build our lives into the magnificent mosaic the Lord desires. When you feel like a failure, keep in mind…
- A moment of failure can be the starting point on the path to success.
- Mosaics are masterpieces created from broken pieces; our lives may be the same.
- God is not going to give up on us. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 6:20, “for God bought you with a high price….”
The temple of our lives is a masterpiece.
